You're asking for too much. RCBM did an article a few years back on a very large R/C boat. It is used by the military to look for underwater mines. That's all the info that I have at hand.

a man in seattle built a full scale unlimited hydro, sporting a v-12 allison, and open cockpit, but apparently didnt want to drive it, in fear of his safety, so converted it to r/c. i doubt he has ever run it, but if you search in google or something you might find it. im not sure if this is true, because its one of those things wher i heard it from... who herd it from... who heard it from a friend of a guy who knew someone who saw it. etc. thats all i know

There was that huge Miss Bud at the Toledo show back a few years ago, the one year that I didn't make the trip. It had to be trailered into the building but I can't remember the scale. It had a Kawasaki 550cc Jet-Ski motor in it, huge redundant servos about the size of car batteries.

ok i think that officially qualifies as insane... my luck if i tried to build something like that and tried to run it, id get the first motor started, then the second, and then whilel trying to light the 3rd or 4th the first would die, and so on ....

true true, very true
but i think that if i were to build something like that i would either run one large tank(i dont know why or that the down falls are, just what comes to mind) or i would try to link them all together with a belt of something so trying to start one would spin all of them
